On the sets of Paathshala recently, Ayesha Takia was caught having a ball with a bunch of kids. She was busy shooting for Ahmed Khan's new film.
The sets looked like a huge boarding school, much like Aamir Khan's Taare Zameen Par. Ayesha informed, "It's lovely to be around children. They can shoot for twenty hours together and not run out of energy."
As of now she's busy enjoying their zest, compliments and queries. She added, "They compliment me on my hair. One of them asked me if my cheeks are real."
Ayesha's role had to be shortened to accommodate the roles of the kids. But she's okay with it. She loves the script and the fact that Ahmed and his wife, Shaira are like family friends to her. Ummm... that means she's effectively ignored the fact that Ahmed's previous films (Lakeer and Fool n Final where she acted in) have been super flops.
She also revealed, "Despite all the masti, there are rules to be followed on the sets. Ahmed Sir after all has a film to complete and makes sure the fun is organised and controlled. There's no smoking on the sets, no shouting and no yelling on the mike."
Looks like she is in an interesting situation in an interesting film! We just hope Ahmed doesn't spoil it in the end for the viewers like he did in the past!
